I can’t wait to meet the little girl that’s been living in my belly and listening to my heartbeat. It’s been a long journey, sometimes scary, and I know we still have a ways to go but I would do it all over again for her. I never really knew how much I wanted her until I read the positive results on the test that morning. At first I cried, to a few friends, to a few family members but when I cried to Barry he just held me and said that God gave us to her and he wants her more than ever. I wonder who she will look like, what color her hair and eyes will be. Who will she take after? Will she love pink and zebra like her mama does or sports like her daddy? Whatever she decides we will always teach her that without God she wouldn’t of been ours, to teach her to forgive everybody and give thanks to the one who gave it all for us. I have so many plans for this little girl and can’t wait until she’s in our arms, and I will just hope and pray it doesn’t fly by… but I know it will, so all we can do is remember and cherish every bit of it. Starting with now.
I haven’t met you yet but you know what?
